  8. I ground up some wheat then I made some whole wheat bread. Now, this morning I am having toast with homemade blueberry jam. Heavenly! I love my grain grinder.
  9. On the way to town we pass a plumbing company he works out of his house and he doesn't have any space for a garden. He has a small parking lot which should be his yard and now grows a garden there. He grows everything in 5 gallon buckets. Tomatoes, sunflowers and something, else could be squash, zuchini or cucumbers, it's too early to tell. This is just what I could see from driving by but it looks like a good idea. Buckets are reuseable and easy to stack when not in use.

  11. I have a couple of questions.... What are you going to do with the feathers, all the bones, heads ?
  12. Last week we had red beans and rice. We'd been eating at Popeye's and I was trying to clone theirs. I came pretty close, but theirs is fantastic. I still have beans sitting in my fridge. I was going to do something else with them like maybe a side dish. The thought of looking at beans just left me feeling....ugh...I can't do it! I've got alot of beans and what if there's an emergency, and I've got lots of beans that don't want to be eaten. I'm about as bad as my children. That's why I'm looking in grinding up beans. I don't see the beans but yet I'm still getting protein from them. I'm glad you brought this up, I'm always looking for more bean and rice recipes.
  13. ZUCCHINI PINEAPPLE 4 quarts cubed or shredded zucchini 46 ounce canned unsweetened pineapple juice 1-1/2 cups bottled lemon juice 3 cups sugar Yield: About 8 to 9 pints Procedure: Peel zucchini and either cut into 1/2-inch cubes or shred. Mix zucchini with other ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer 20 minutes. Fill jars with hot mixture and cooking liquid, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Adjust lids and process
  14. Thanks for the wood cookstove tips!
  15. What are you going to do about the noise? When they start to lay eggs they start to cackle! I can hear my neighbors chickens but I don't see them and he lives a good distance away from us. I'm only trying to help you with your plans.
  16. 1) Do you feel you are depriving your child of social interaction? (Missing prom, graduation, etc) I am a stay at home mom! I love it! I have four children and it's demanding but I love it!
  17. Does anyone or has anyone pressure canned on a wood cookstove or woodstove? I've got a wood cookstove now and I know I could water bath on it but to pressure cook on it...I wouldn't know where to start.
